Peo­ple who can write with both hands are not ex­actly rare to come by, but a school girl in Meerut district, stands out, be­cause she can not only write with both hands but writes dif­fer­ent lan­guages with both hands at the same time.

Te­jaswi Tyagi, a stu­dent of class 11, can si­mul­ta­ne­ously write Hindi with one hand and English with the other.

Te­jaswi, who be­longs to a farmer’s fam­ily and lives in Phool­bagh in Meerut, says that she was four years old when she re­alised that she could write with both hands.

“Ini­tially, I used to write the same lan­guage with both hands bSut then I started prac­tic­ing and be­gan writ­ing dif­fer­ent lan­guages at the same time”, she said and added that she can also write with one hand and make a draw­ing with the other. When Te­jaswi writes with both hands, one can no­tice a pe­cu­liar­ity – she writes all words in­verted, but reads them right. Her mother Sangeeta said that the fam­ily does not force Te­jaswi to do any­thing. “We re­alise that she is ex­cep­tion­ally tal­ented and we do not wish to push her fur­ther. She wants to be­come a doc­tor and we will pro­vide all help she needs, her mother said.
